Great with Mexican rice and fried beans with cheese melted on top, if desired! Sort of 'On-The-Border Southern Fried Chicken'.

Beat a couple of eggs in a bowl. After you coat the chicken with flour dip it in the eggs and then back in the flour. This should help hold the crust on better.

This recipe disappointed me. I was having a Mexican Fiesta, and wanted to make fried chicken for those who didn't eat Mexican. I wanted to make a dish that had a Mexican Flare, but this wasn't it. The chicken cooked up very dark, looking like it was burnt. Maybe, you should only use one package of taco seasoning mix. The chicken was very, very bland, and messy. It was too much mess for ordinary tasting chicken. It wasn't worth the trouble. I will not try this again, not in this fashion.

I followed this recipee exactly and found it messy. The coating wouldn't stick and there didn't seem to be enough oil to fry it. The coating was crunchy and flavorful, but it would have been nice to have it on the chicken and not stuck to the bottom of the pan. I really did't care for this one. Sorry!
